... water. and if i cut them 1/2 there are alot of sharp edges that cut the throat. can't you make it a little bit smaller or do something... it works great BUT
The tablets contain 1000mg of Metformin which is a big amount hence the big size of the tablet. There are several brands of Metformin available. Ask your pharmacist to find you the smallest tablet so you can ask your doctor for that specific brand.
It has to do with the formulation, the ER tablets have a control release matrix that sadly make the tablets bigger.
